VICTIMS OF COTTON GAMBLING. LANCASHIRE'S PLUCKY FIGHT. MILL HANDS EARN THE WORLD'S RESPECT. One feature of the gloomy times through which the Cotten trade is passing is the admirable character displayed by che Mill Hands. The suffering aad deprivation caused by the attempted ''Corner" is being borne by the operatives with fine courage. They have proved that they possess true grit; they work hard, play hard, and meet good fortune an i adversity with equal grace. A Deserted Cotton Mill. As a class, mili workers earn good money, but it is often gained under most trying circumstances. They labour amid the whirr of ponderous machinery, and the heat is so great that only light attire can be borne. The change to outside air has proved too much for many a robust man. A typical case is that of Mr Peter Roberts, aged thirty-eight, who resides with his wife and family of three young children at 16, Punch-street, Bolton. He was long ill, and he is ready to declare that his recovery is solely due to Dr Williams' pink pills for pale people. Interviewed by a Bolton Chronicle reporter just as he had returned from a hard day's work, Mr Roberts said :—" I had been depressed and languid for weeks while following my employment as mill overlooker in Little Bolton. What broke me down was a heavy chill. Torturing pains gripped me round the waist, but I managed to struggle home, and my wife seeing I was seriously ill, persuaded me to go to bed. Every joint in my body swelled, a doctor was hurriedly summoned, and at the close of a thorough examination I was told I was suffering from Bright's disease of the kidneys, dropsy and complications. I was as bad as I could possibly be, and as weeks went by without any signs of improvement I decided to try Dr Williams' pink pills. My wife had read in the newspapers of cures in similiar cases to mine. The pills acted like magic. I had been ill in bed for a month, and commencing with one pill after each meal I steadily improved. My strength gradually returned, and before I had taken the second box the swelling had disappeared, and I was soon out of bed and walking about. Whilst taking the third box I felt so much better that I returned to my work." And what is the condition of your health to- day ?" I have practically regained all my old vigour. I continue taking the pills, and I believe very shortly I shall be as good a man as ever. Dr Williams' pink pills brought me round when I was a perfect wreck and despairing of recovery." How is it that one man can "shake off" an illness where another cannot? The difference is all a question of vitality vitality is a question of blood. Mr Roberts had been depressed and languid for weeks," he says, when he finally broke down and no wonder, when his kidneys were diseased and he had sunk into such a low state that dropsy had come on. What enabled him to shake off the disease was Dr Williams' pink pills, of which the peculiar merit is that they make new blood. They gave him the necessary vitality. They will give it to all who need new blood and new strength, and it is in this way that they have cured so many cases of anjemia, bile, consumption, fits. rheumatism, St. Vitus' dance, indigestion, and even paralysis—simply by making new blood. A close observer can see them giving new strength, better appetite, and fresh vitality with every dose. — ——————————
